Abstract A considerable amount of derogatory communication directed towards women has been transmitted through social networking sites in the form of online abuse, which has increased significantly in recent years. Social media is significant in the current technological era. Social media is both promoting gender-based violence, which primarily targets women and girls with disabilities and empowering women by dispelling outdated beliefs and stereotypes. Social media gender-based violence encompasses a range of activities such as uninvited sexual remarks, postings, threats, cyberstalking, tracking, hacking, and stalking. This is due to illiteracy and immature thought processes. Social media has made it possible to spread horrific stories about violent incidents involving women across the nation. In India, gender-based violence is still a major issue. The research holds significance for society as social media plays a major role in the violence against women with disabilities. The current study looks into the effects of gender-based violence on disabled women and how it is promoted on social media. Secondary sources such as newspapers, journals, magazines, texts, the internet, etc. are the basis of the study, and descriptive research formats are used for the analysis. The anticipated outcome would support the various ways that gender-based violence is promoted on social media, which causes socioeconomic hardship for women.
